DIY Nursery and Baby Accessories

I'm definitely no DIY-expert. (As is evidenced by the lack of any "progression" pictures of the following crafts...) But every now and then I like to tap into my creative side and make things.

My first DIY project was Madison's wall name. I knew when I saw this picture on Pinterest that it would be perfect for displaying a name.

When we were in Houston I got all the necessary items and I love how it turned out! I couldn't have done it without help from this little one though - 

Here's the only progression picture of any of the crafts. :-)

And the final product!

I convinced Jason to buy me a sewing machine for Christmas and have been putting it to good use.

First I started with something simple - basket liners. A much easier solution than trying to find the right size baskets and nursery themed liners. :-)

Next we purchased a crib mobile at a used baby sale. It was a cute jungle theme, but obviously not what we were going for in Madi's nursery. So I had the idea to make my own shapes and re-cover it. I, of course, didn't take a before picture of the old one, but I found this picture that shows it a little bit and Madi's name on the wall.

And the new mobile. I think it turned out great and I am really happy with it.

Next I turned my attention to more practical accessories - burp cloths, pacifier clips, and headbands. :-)

I bought cloth diapers and covered them with the different fabrics my mom and I bought in Houston.

I also made pacifier clips!

Of course I made a matching set in her damask nursery-theme.

And last, but not least, I made her headbands. Really I just sewed together doilies and buttons onto hair clips. I sewed a couple buttons onto the actual headbands, but the others are changeable. Now which one should she wear home from the hospital... :-)
